View Full Version : Central Region Structure Change Announcement

03-01-2014, 11:05 PM
Effective March 1, 2014, the Central Region of the Heartland Owners Club has been restructured as two regions, known as North Central Region and South Central Region, each with its own Regional Director.

This restructuring is necessitated by the physical size of the Central Region. It will afford each Regional Director the opportunity to spend more time working with Chapter Leaders and traveling to the Chapter events within their Region.

Jay and Stella Coffman, current Directors for the entire Central Region, have graciously agreed to lead the South Central Region. Jay’s contact information is jcoffman1@gmail.com / 281-460-5402. Stella’s contact information is scoffman27@gmail.com.

The North Central Region will be led by Karen and Dan Halvorsen. Dan and Karen bring much experience from their involvement with Good Sam Club Chapters and Heartland Owners events they’ve organized the past two years in the Texas Coastal Bend. Karen and Dan’s contact information is herbiesrig@gmail.com / 906-458-6762.

The South Central Region includes the following Chapters: Texas-South, Texas-North, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Missouri.

The North Central Region includes these Chapters: Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

2014 will be a transition year, with Jay and Stella still operating the business side of the North Central Region and Karen and Dan traveling to as many of the North Central 2014 events as possible and working with Chapter Leaders planning their 2015 events.

By 2015, Karen and Dan will take over the business side of the North Central Region.

I will be changing the profiles of all Central Region Club members to reflect their new region.

Club Manager
